Candidates who run short on time do not have a chance to click “Done” to indicate that they have completed the last testlet. Some worry that their responses were not captured by the system. Fortunately candidate responses during the CPA exam are automatically saved every 30 seconds. This is to ensure that no information is lost due to technical issues such as a power outage or computer crash.
When the exam terminates due to expiration of time your progress is automatically saved.
